Most of tracked mountain lions in Santa Monica Mountains NRA survive wildfire, but habitat burned

The Santa Monica Mountains, a vast expanse of forest, hiking trails and movie-filming sites in Southern California, have been blackened by the Woolsey Fire. As of Tuesday, state officials said, at least 83 percent of the 24,000 acres of federal parkland in the range had burned.

The charred landscape was also the habitat for what is arguably the country’s most studied and most imperiled population of mountain lions, and the fates of several remain unclear.
